that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math, it's arithmetic. >> get the rates down, lower deductions and exemptions to create more jobs because there's nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget to have more people working, earning more money and paying taxes and that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. a big night in denver on wednesday, as president barack obama, and mitt romney met for the first presidential debate and the candidates sparred as you heard over taxes and the deficit as well as health care. wall street reform and the role of government. with mitt romney taking some sharp shots at the president's record these past four years. >> we're seeing right now is, in my view, a trickle down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams and that's not working the. proof of that is 23 million people out of work and the proof one out of
will do little to cut the deficit. >> somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. >> reporter: but elmo is not tickled. sesame street's producers released a statement saying it's not taking sides adding we have approved no campaign ads and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down. republicans are now calling it the big bird backfire. >> i just find it troubling that the president's message -- the president's focus 28 days from election day is big bird. >> reporter: romney's advisors say it's a surprising tactic given what then-senator obama said in his convention speech in 2008. >> if you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. you make a big election about small things. >> reporter: the romney campaign also believes the candidate is connecting better with voters. here getting choked up talking about navy seal glenn dougherty who died in a consulate attack in libya, a man romney said he once met. >> you can imagine how i felt when i found out that he was one o
the president was running as a candidate four years ago, he looked at the deficits under president bush and found them to be excessive and unamerican. they're about half as large as the ones he has put in place over each of the last four years. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. he doubled it. there's no question if he was going to be re-elect, we would see trillion dollar deficits again and again and again. our marshall debt now is almost the same as our total economy, our gdp. this slows down the economy. it makes it harder for businesses to grow and hire more people and to raise wages. so unlike the president, when i finally get this shot, i will cap federal spending. i will cut federal spend and get us on track to a balanced budget. thereby other differences as well. the government is planning on through obama care cutting medicare for our current retirees by $716 billion. i hi that's wrong. i think we must honor the promise made to our seniors. i will restore that funding and make sure we protect medicare. one more thing i'll mention. the president's budget calls for
. >> the trade deficit that china has cost the united states almost 3 million jobs. >> sherrod brawn is calling for action against cheating china. >> they don't play fair and we have to fight back. >> he said his bill will force trade -- >> it creates and protects job by cracking down on chinese currency manipulation. >> i brought democrats and republicans together to pass legislation on china. now we can level the playing field for workers. i'm sherrod brown and i approve this megsage. >> why are they spending so much from polling in other races show they are closing race? >> because they think this is as good a pickup tune as any that might be out there. look, the reality is sherrod brown, you described him as a populous. that's true he runs as such. he's also a liberal senator who is stuck to the hip to the obama administration roar. so on stimulus, on obamacare, and this is a state that is not necessarily overly liberal, in fact, it's conservative in many ways. they see this opportunity, they have this young man who is relatively new to politics, very charismatic, he's been a big fundraiser
the city's $300 million budget deficit without raising taxes and fees this year. in his annual budget speech, emanuel took aim at chicago's pensions, warning that without reform, the city could raise property taxes in the future by as much as 150%. that is tough news. >> that is tough sledding. in "the wall street journal," the deaths of four americans on the attack on the consulate in benghazi sparked political fighting during hearings on capitol hill yesterday. security officials charged with protecting the compound testified that requests to keep an american military team in libya were denied. and that protection was cut in the weeks leading up to the deadly assault. >> we were fighting a losing battle. we couldn't even keep what we had. we were not even allowed to keep what we had. >> it was abundantly clear, we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. >> this story is going to just grow. and it's looking very, very bad for the administration and the decisions that were made to cut security there. state department officials have said that keeping the tea
small businesses, doubled their income taxes this year, we'd still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class. the tax bill is coming to you. >> so al. >> good exchange. >> what do you think, mika? >> no, al, go ahead. >> you laughed at that line. a lot of people thought that was a strong line. >> okay. it was ridiculous. >> it was ridiculous. >> what was ridiculous about it, mika? >> both sides are being ridiculous on this one because neither one of these people are going to balance the budget. this is the biggest failure in the campaign on both sides. >> amen. >> is that neither side has made any significant attempt to balance the budget. and what ryan and romney are calling is outrageously stupid. what the president is doing is inadequate. >> okay. al? >> good description. nothing partisan about that description. you know, al, the governor brings up a point. i'
is he's talking about tax cuts and deficit reduction at the same time. and the pew poll that came out earlier this week, wolf, said six in ten voters believe that romney is promising more than he can deliver. one reason bill clinton's speech was so popular at the democratic convention was he said the arithmetic doesn't add up. so you can push is this just rhetoric during a campaign, or is this real? if you want to close tax loopholes, okay, fine. what loopholes would you close? he's got to answer that. and so far hasn't done it. >> his argument is i don't want to put all that out right now. because if he's president, he's going to have to negotiate all those issues with democrats. and why put your own position out right now. >> sure. >> i don't know if his argument's going to necessarily hold. that's another matter. a lot of folks have seen romney over these past couple weeks at the debate, in the interview with me, moving more towards the center. do you see that? >> i did. i saw that particularly in your interview when he talked about the wealthy and how his tax plan would affect the
the deficit, and that's going to fall on middle-class families so it's a question of philosophy here, whether you think there is enough and other things he says he'll do to cut spending in the budget to make up the money that would be lost in revenue from that 20% across the board tax cut or whether you believe that the plan that president obama is saying to say that there should be cut for middle-class taxes, extension for bush tax cuts for those making under $250,000 and not for others and that that money should be used to make up the revenue there. >> lori, there was also a dispute add to whether ryan would have voted for plan that would have raised out-of-pocket cost. take a listen. >> who do you trust on this? a man who introduce add bill that would raise it $6,400 a year. knowing it, passing it, and romney saying -- >> that stay tiks tick was completely misleading. >> those are the fact, right? >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. >> so prp says ryan's plan would have cost $6,400 more. ryan calls that completely misleading as you saw there. who's right
deficits. >> i understand. hang on. hang on. hang on. ron, we're not going to do talking points here. i'm asking you a very simple question. >> i'm not doing talking points. >> i didn't ask you about the economy. we can get to that. what did he mean in his statement that seems to be contradictory statements? >> i just told you what he meant. he said that his agenda is not going to be focused on abortion. it's going to be -- he did not say it was going to be focused on other issues, but obviously it's going to be. that's why he talked about the economy, what voters care about in these 27 days. >> romney was criticized for changing views on key issues and former president clinton had something to say about it. take a listen. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i thought, wow! here is old moderate mitt. where have you been, boy? i missed you all these last few years. just show up with a sunny face and say, i didn't say all that stuff i said the last two years. i don't have that tax plan i had for the last two years. are you going to believe me or yo

the truth. it was not an $8 billion deficit. >> ted, everybody is lying according to you. $250 million. >> only the republicans. >> auto industry is exceedingly important in the state, but if you look at where ohio has grown in job creation since kasik became governor, it has been in manufacturing. we have had significant growth in jobs. say, 123,000 new jobs. those have not been in the job -- in the auto industry. auto industry has not gone up. if you look at what kasik has done, he has made a real difference. he has the same philosophy and will do the same thing that mitt romney will do as president. lower taxes, less regulation, balance the budget. these are things that make a difference. the other thing that romney will do that the president is not doing and simply, frankly, is incapable of doing. i served with him for two years in the u.s. sete. nice guy. talented. horribly partisan. what mitt romney will do as president is the same thing that ronald reagan did and, frankly, bill clinton did. hold your principles. be tough. in the end you know you have to negotiate, and that's the
of mitt romney surging, just remember how much of a deficit he had to make up. he was in some cases double digits behind the president in all those attributes. >> pull back the reins. >> the media is focusing on one poll. >> that's reaction to the recent batch of polling, including that devastating pew poll that showed a four point romney lead. now consider that pew took an earlier poll in september a couple weeks before the debate, it was the republicans going ballistic when it showed romney eight points down. watch. >> these polls are basically just part and parcel of the campaign for barack obama to help him stay in this game as long as possible. >> if you believe what the polls are saying right now, you've got to believe that there's something huge going on. >> i've said that all along, and i'm willing to say that publicly and stick by it, and i know that that poll, up 15 points, is absolutely invalid. >> people need to understand that the polling this year is the worst it's ever been. >> that is not a legitimate poll in 2012. >> both polls were skewed when we had them on the program t
